So you think you've had some interesting baby sitting experiences? Well, I think Gabby Duran has you beat. After all, sitting for the "Unsittables" isn't a walk in the park. This story was absolutely adorable! A light, quick-moving, and grin inducing romp through the life of a very special baby sitter. I zipped through this, and I don't regret one minute of it.

Now, this is definitely a book targeted at Middle Grade readers. If you can't let go of reality long enough to accept the fact that Gabby is quite a popular baby sitter, and by that I mean movie stars fly her to their sets to watch their kids, then the sheer silliness of this story won't sit well with you. If you can, you're in for a treat! This book is the perfect MG no-brainer. It has the perfect amount of MG friendly tension and intrigue. There isn't anything too gross or too scary to address when deciding whether to put this in a readers hands. Best of all, there's an underlying message. One of understanding, patience, and acceptance.

If you aren't sold yet, let me tell you that Gabby Duran is a wonderful character. On top of being a compassionate and amazing baby sitter, she's also a very smart and resourceful young girl. Her affection for the children she worked with was infectious. It could very well be that I'm biased, seeing as how I worked with children for a huge portion of my life, but I loved seeing that kind of passion in a book character. There wasn't a single part of Gabby that I didn't feel connected to, and I'm not even the target audience.

Are you looking for a new book for that MG reader in your family? Consider putting this in their hands. Then sit back, and prepare for the giggles to start. ( )

Twelve-year-old Gabby Duran, Babysitter to the Stars is recruited to babysit for Unsittables - children of Aliens who have not-so-human capabilities. Gabby wants to make enough money to help ease the financial burden for her single, hard-working mother, and also to begin saving money for her own future in a music conservatory. On a day she has set aside in her own schedule as being too busy to babysit, she receives her newest charge - Wutt. And to complicate matters further, Gabby is warned that someone from the group G.E.T.O.U.T. is trying to annihilate Wutt. Gabby wants to make it through the day, and still (hopefully) play solo in her school orchestra that evening.

Kids will adore the madcap adventures of Gabby and her friends as they try - unbeknownst to all but Gabby - to keep little Wutt safe. This is a fun adventure for young to middle readers. ( )

This book is about a girl named Gabby Duran. She has been asked to babysit aliens by Edwina who is a member of A.L.I.E.N. Edwina makes sure the world does not know that aliens exist. Gabby is assigned to babysit a alien girl named Wutt. I like this book because I really like science fiction books. I also like this book because it's very interesting to me. I would recommend this book to people who like science fiction. ( )

Gabby Duran has never shied away from challenging clients. She may be only 12, but she has the creativity and composure to deal with the most mischievous or obstinate child, and her babysitting business is booming. In fact, her skills draw the attention of some highly unusual clients: aliens. Gabby's career is about to be launched in a whole new direction. If she's successful the rewards could be huge, enough to put her through college and set her entire family on stable financial footing -- but if she fails, the consequences could be, well, cosmic.

I had so much fun reading this book. It's a light, quick read, packed with the sort of humor that will delight young readers. I'm hoping that this is just the first of many adventures for Gabby Duran! ( )
